Frankenreads on Camera November 14, 2018 If you missed the livestream of the marathon reading of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein at the Library of Congress on (when else?) Halloween, you can now catch all 9+ hours of it on YouTube. Ron Charles in action at Frankenreads. Dramatic highlights include my DC writing buddy and neighbor Louis Bayard beginning at 49:20, the Washington Post’s Totally Hip Book Reviewer Ron Charles in a Tigger costume (maybe a nod to the animal passions on display in the book) at 4:30:30, and my good friend Amanda French reading the dramatic conclusion (complete with accusatory finger-pointing) from 9:05:24 on. I’m on camera narrating poor Justine’s tear-jerking final hours at 2:51:30 or thereabouts. I’m not used to seeing myself on camera but I had a blast being part of #Frankenreads. Now I want to do more public readings. Talk about creating a monster….
